In 1874, The gang boss in New York City had Gabe put on a train and said, "Just keep going west until your hat floats." After six months of life in San Francisco, Gabe thinks the western city just might have possibilities. New friends, a special girlfriend, and the U.S. Gold mint help to bring him to this new view of the city. If he could successfully relieve that mint of it's gold, he'd have it made in the west.

MANIFEST DESTINY is a sprawling epic of the American West of the 1880s--a biographical novel that dramatizes the true story of the coming of age of Theodore Roosevelt. Based on memoirs and other writings of the actual participants, this novel is a fascinating study of Roosevelt's growth as seen by several different characters, each of whom has his own opinion of the young dude--and each of whom has his own axe to grind as he watches the little New Yorker contend with cattle ranching, trail drives, round-ups, big-game hunts, and the swaggering, challenging menace of the Marquis De Mores, principal landowner on the Dakota frontier, pretender to the throne of France, and notorious killer of many men. Through the eyes of Roosevelt's contemporaries, the reader sees the frail, asthmatic youth become the robust American legend who, just eighteen years later, would become the youngest and most vigorous president in the history of the United States.
The years between the Civil War and Prohibition: were wild times and, though many lived them, it was Hugh Cardiff who lived them to the hilt. For more than fifty years the world's champion rifle shot, he was a sharpshooter, fugitive, murderer, Indian fighter, showman, creator of the original Wild West Show, and much, much more. Millions read his adventures in the dime novels, but did anyone know the truth? The American West lives again in all its glory as the "King of the Crack Shots" tells his tale--the story of an exuberant young nation bursting with raw energy and a hero larger than legend, larger than life.
